The last Easter Card for a Granddaughter

This is the last of grandchildren's card, and should have arrived at its destination by today, as between my hubby and I we have eight grandchildren, and it takes awhile to get them all done and into the post, and by gum it wasnt cheap to post them either, but I cheated on one of them, I put them into one package and posted it all together which I hope turned out a bit cheaper.
We are of to the NEC tomorrow so Im really looking forward to that, and I do so hope it wont be quite so crowded as it was the last time I visited, it was heaving and of course it got extremely hot, and you couldnt get anywhere near the stands.
Anyway todays card has been created from one of Mo Mannings gorgeous images, this one is of "Sydney on Easter" isnt she adorable. Ive coloured her with my copic pens then used one of new label dies to cut her out, the sentiment is another of my stash ones and Ive done exactly the same with that and mounted both onto some blue card.
The base card is 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and one of three papers from the Papermania Honey and Hugs set, the first one is a design of farm animals and one top of this I have used a plain green/yellow paper and punched a border of rabbits with my Martha Stewart border punch, for the last layer Ive used another of the patterned papers, this has a small pig design on, this was then stuck across the centre and my mounted image was stuck in the centre and the sentiment to the bottom on the right. To finish of Ive used a lamb and pig button for embellishments and they were positioned either side of the image.
